  • Bizdom Accelerator Is Looking For Startups In Cleveland, Detroit For April 2012 Session

    Bizdom Accelerator Is Looking For Startups In Cleveland, Detroit For April 2012 Session

    Here at TechCrunch, we live, eat, sleep and breathe startups. But sometimes we can get a little too focused on Silicon Valley and forget that there are startup scenes blossoming all over the country and the world. Two up and coming startup states just so happen to be Michigan and Ohio, and one accelerator, Bizdom, is looking for the next generation of entrepreneurs. The accelerator is… Read More

  • Pinterest Revamps Profile Pages: Streamlined Content, Cleaner Interface, New Board Layout

    Pinterest Revamps Profile Pages: Streamlined Content, Cleaner Interface, New Board Layout

    We sort of saw this coming, given the fact that Ben Silbermann said so at SXSW, but Pinterest has just revamped its profile pages. Those of you familiar with the hottest new social network will know that profile pages originally displayed all of your boards, their titles, with thumbnails of each pin in every board. It got the job done to be sure, but was also pretty simple. Today, all… Read More

  • Apple's Brand New iPad Hits the Stores

    Meet Jean And His Brand New iPad

    Meet Jean. He’s one of a few very lucky owners of the brand new iPad. And he’s thrilled. Read More

  • Peter Vesterbacka Talks About Angry Birds Space

    The Mighty Eagle Himself, Peter Vesterbacka, Offers First In-Depth Demo Of Angry Birds Space

    I’ve been excited about Angry Birds Space since before I even knew about it. It’s like that awful Savage Garden song: “I think I dreamed it into life.” The only thing is that I didn’t dream it into life; Peter Vesterbacka and his amazing team at Rovio did. And after getting a sneak peek at the latest and greatest Angry Birds, I can confidently say that this will… Read More

  • $900 Nokia Lumia 800 Bundle Available Now At Amazon

    $900 Nokia Lumia 800 Bundle Available Now At Amazon

    If you were thinking that the Lumia 800 would somehow go for less than it is at Microsoft stores — $899 with Nokia Play 360 Bluetooth speakers, Nokia Purity HD headphones and a Luna Bluetooth headset — let me just do you a favor and burst that bubble right here and now. Amazon has just joined Microsoft retail stores in offering the Windows Phone device, and unfortunately the… Read More

  • Flip To Hand Over Sharing Platform Flipshare To Givit, Users Have 30 Days To Transfer Content

    Flip To Hand Over Sharing Platform Flipshare To Givit, Users Have 30 Days To Transfer Content

    The writing was on the wall for Flip, but when Cisco decided to shutter its rather popular Flip video camera business in April 2011, the company promised a smooth transition for existing users. That said, Givit video sharing service will be integrating with Flipshare, Flip’s online video sharing platform, to store the content that will soon be permanently deleted from Flipshare. Even… Read More

    Need A New iPad? Here’s How Much Apple Will Shell Out For Your Old One

    If you’re looking to get a new iPad and happen to have an old one (and by old, I mean the iPad 2), Apple just made it that much easier. Apple’s Reuse and Recycling Program has been updated today to reflect the values for various models of the iPad 2. The program offers Apple gift cards in exchange for your old gadgetry, which will hopefully entice you to trade-in instead of… Read More

  • This Is Everything You Need To Know About Pinterest (Infographic)

    This Is Everything You Need To Know About Pinterest (Infographic)

    Oh, Pinterest… Over the course of the past few months, what once was a colorful haven for Midwestern mothers and Mormons is now an even more colorful haven for even more pin-tastic peeps. The growth has been staggering, even in what many would call an overly social era. But surrounded by Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc., Pinterest has really made a name for itself. And while many… Read More

  • Here Are The HTC Phones Invited To The Ice Cream Sandwich Social

    Here Are The HTC Phones Invited To The Ice Cream Sandwich Social

    Though it’s far and away the best iteration of Android to date, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has only made its way to a very small percentage of the Android population. I mean, we’re talking less than five percent, and that’s generous. Luckily, HTC is doing its part to bring the cold creamy goodness of Roboto, facial unlock and a brand new UI to its handsets.

  • LG Spectrum Phone on Fly or Die

    Fly Or Die: The LG Spectrum

    The Spectrum has been a busy little diva the last few days, strutting in and out of our NYC studio like she belongs there. So much in fact, that I’ve given her a gender and started to refer to her in gender-specific pronouns. A scary thought, to say the least. Matt seems less perturbed by her presence, though I was (and still am) more than willing to duke it out with him over the value… Read More

  • Sony Unveils The Xperia Sola: Look, Mom! No Hands!

    Sony Unveils The Xperia Sola: Look, Mom! No Hands!

    Sony’s been bringing it lately, with a trifecta of monosyllabic Xperia goodness at CES and MWC. I personally believe that a key ingredient in the secret sauce may be Sony’s ability to keep the new phones classy — the Xperia S, U, and P all got high marks from us in terms of build, feel in the hand, and overall aesthetic quality. But the newest member of the Xperia clan may… Read More

  • LG Spectrum Review

    LG Spectrum Review: Initial Impressions (Video)

    Let me just start by saying that so far, I’m not a fan. But, these are just initial impressions so we’ll see how my relationship with the Spectrum progresses over time. Sure, the LG Spectrum has a stunning 4.5-inch 720p display, Verizon 4G LTE, and all the innards of what could be a great smartphone. But so far I’m not ready to call it a great smartphone. Read More

  • Got Facebook Pics? Transform Them Into Wall Art With CanvasPop

    Got Facebook Pics? Transform Them Into Wall Art With CanvasPop

    If ever there was a meeting ground between your decorative tastes and your virtual self, it would be CanvasPop. The service lets you upload photos, even those taken with a cameraphone, and blows them up onto canvas to hang in your home. It’s pretty nifty to say the least, though until today the fun was limited to uploads and Instagram photos. But CanvasPop is ready to go big, thus… Read More

  • Mogul iPad Stand Makes Square An Elegant Option At Point-Of-Sale

    Mogul iPad Stand Makes Square An Elegant Option At Point-Of-Sale

    I usually trash any email that comes my way pitching an iPad case and/or stand. Sorry, but there are just so many of them that they really need to stand out. The Mogul, a Kickstarter project, certainly stands out and just so happens to solve a bit of a pain point, too. See, the Mogul isn’t your average iPad stand. It’s actually meant to be used as a point-of-sale module in… Read More

  • Empire Avenue Revamps Interface, Adds Google+ Scoring

    Empire Avenue Revamps Interface, Adds Google+ Scoring

    Empire Avenue, while a great service, has been a bit confusing. In fact, the idea itself can kind of boggle the mind — users build up their personal brands via Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks, and allow people to buy and sell virtual shares of human beings. Users can also turn the value of their web-based contributions into actual revenue by tapping into an advertising… Read More

  • Danny Wen Explains What Harvest Is

    Harvest Co-Founder: “Solve A Real Pain Point, And Don’t Be Afraid To Charge For It” [TCTV]

    Right now the enterprise software space is growing rapidly, but so are the number of users who need it, especially freelancers, independent contractors, consultants, and developers. That said, companies who provide services like time-tracking need to evolve in order to meet the growing demands of their users. I sat down with Danny Wen, co-founder of time-tracking service Harvest, who knows… Read More

  • Nokia Lumia 900 Won’t Hit AT&T Shelves Until April 22

    Nokia Lumia 900 Won’t Hit AT&T Shelves Until April 22

    We’d heard a while back that the long-awaited Windows Phone-powered Lumia 900 would show up on AT&T’s shelves on March 18. However, around the time that this rumored launch date leaked, the Lumia 900 had yet to go through its testing in the technical acceptance process. Turns out, that may be the reason BGR is now reporting that the Lumia 900 launch has been delayed to April 22. Read More

  • Pinterest Now Generates More Referral Traffic Than Twitter: Study

    Pinterest Now Generates More Referral Traffic Than Twitter: Study

    This is big. A new study by online sharing tool Shareaholic has found that Pinterest now drives more referral traffic than Twitter. Again, when it comes to referral traffic, Pinterest > Twitter. The data is based on analytics from 200,000 publishers which reach approximately 270 million unique visitors a month. Read More

  • These Are The New iPad LTE Data Plans

    These Are The New iPad LTE Data Plans

    Many of us have been confused over the past 24 hours about what exactly is happening with the new iPad data plans. First Apple screwed up and said AT&T would offer 2GB for $30 instead of 3GB, and one of Verizon’s plans was missing altogether from the site. It was kind of a mess. But we’ve finally got things nailed down for you so this is the deal: Read More

  • TweetAngel Is Twitter CRM Insurance For Small Businesses

    TweetAngel Is Twitter CRM Insurance For Small Businesses

    I often wonder what it’s like to be a customer service representative on Twitter. Lots of companies have them, especially the ones we cover here on TechCrunch which happen to be a bit more tech-savvy than your good ol’ brick-and-mortar small businesses, but it seems like a pretty rough gig. People become shockingly more bold, and angry, via Twitter and it takes a full-time worker… Read More
